Happy Birthday Blog!
Wednesday, January 7, 2009
My blog is one year old today! Amazing how time flies...this time last year I was in a very different place in my life. I was finishing my last semester of my teaching program, without a paying job and therefore broke...my long-term relationship was rapidly unraveling, and quite honestly my life just felt like it was crashing down around me. My blog kind of began as a writing outlet, a way to order my then seemingly orderless life. Along with my family and friends, this blog ended up being a saving grace, giving me an outlet to voice some of my thoughts, creative energy, frustration, and a welcome distraction from everything else that was going on. It's amazing to me looking back how much your life can change in a year. This year I feel like I am in a much better, healthier place. I am the proud teacher of a classroom full of 21 darling little 2nd graders, I am in a new and exciting relationship, and I just feel better...overall. I guess you really do have to wade through the tough times to make the good times shine that much more. Thanks to everyone who has read, commented, and become my imaginary blog friends along the way. image/photobucket
